Why does this Tenant Improvement Cost So Much?

    I’m often asked questions like this in the early phases of a tenant improvement. The client has many questions during early phases of an office relocation, and they normally would prefer to pin down the cost question quickly, so they can make a decision whether to move forward.

As we covered previously, there are four stages of commercial architecture. Here are the final stages of a design process

The Final Stages of a Commercial Architectural Design

In the first two stages of a commercial architecture project, an architect must first off determine the client’s requirements and then determine where the project is going to be. The process then continues onto the third and the fourth step in this process.

After the site location and the design requirements have been determined by the commercial architect along with the client, then it is time to create a design proposal, and then submit the plan to the client for approval.

3. Create design proposal
Ensure you create the concept drawings and designs for your client to review. Focus on the main floor, exterior of the building and office work spaces. A good number of commercial architecture firms hire model makers to create a scale model of the design. This process assists the client to clearly visualize the final product expected.
4. Submit project plan and costing
After the conceptual design has been approved, the costing and technical aspect of commercial architecture rolls out. Prepare detailed time lines, project plans, costs and decision points. This project plan forms the basis of the quotation. Therefore it must be approved by the client before commencement of any work.

Is this the end of the commercial project?  Not at all.  There is also a lot of other details that are necessary for the project to be considered a success.

Architecture and The Wrap Up

For example, there should be a time limit established for each stage of the project.  Have you ever watched a building being built?  It follows a specific path for each stage to be completed before the next stage can begin.  For example,  the plans have to meet the requirements of any building codes that are applicable.  If a city has a “no skyscraper” ordinance, it won’t be possible to build a multi-story building on the site.  Inversely, a sprawling business campus can’t be built somewhere that will have a negative environmental impact, or somewhere that is potentially dangerous.  A floodplain isn’t a good place for any building, whether it is commercial or residential.

Ultimately, the architectural design process is a complex one and it involved multiple parties. The two most important ones?
Why the client and the commercial architect in Phoenix of course.
